Winds will be northwestern and moderate across most of Egypt, and active in South Sinai, blowing up sand and dust in some areas and disrupting maritime navigation in the Red Sea.

Waves in the Mediterranean Sea will be moderate, ranging between 1.5 and two meters in height. Waves in the Red Sea will be moderate to rough, ranging between two and 2.5 meters in height. Surface winds will be northwesterly on both seas.
